Lake Vermilion Fishing Report June 6, 2014

As another week winds down, time to summarize this past week’s catch. In general, there were many cabins that enjoyed several fish fry’s along with the chance to catch, photo and release a lot of nice fish, as evidenced by the following list. It started as early as Saturday night for Dale & Rod, who kept a nice batch for the frying pan leaving the dock at 8:30 after checking in and getting settled. We even snuck out on Wednesday… Read More »

Lake Vermilion ice 2014 update

The update is easy – IT IS GONE! What a difference from yesterday to today. There may be a floater left where we can’t see it, but as far as we are concerned, it is time to focus on some Lake Vermilion fishing! While the ice changed plans of many opener regulars, those that came found open water to fish, catching more big fish than eaters. Pete Spong caught and released a 23 inch, Dave Spong a 21 inch and… Read More »

2013 wrap up – Everett Bay Lodge on Lake Vermilion

We are in the midst of putting the “finishing touches” on the 2013 resort season.  While we certainly enjoyed the company of our “regular” guests who make each season great, we were happy to welcome a good number of returning guests who had missed a few years, but found their way back up north to enjoy beautiful Lake Vermilion.  We are truly blessed to have so many wonderful customers and appreciate your business. The stubborn May ice delayed the action… Read More »

Lake Vermilion Fishing Report – Sept. 22, 2013

In addition to this week’s Muskie action reported on the previous post, this bite was more of the same.  “Eater” walleyes and some bigger ones.  Randy Hodgin and George Schafer had to work for what they caught, but in the end they caught a nice mix of walleyes to eat and a nice list of fish they released.  Along the same lines, the Wagner crew spent 3 days fishing Lake Vermilion and part of their time was with Lake Vermilion… Read More »

Lake Vermilion Fishing Report – September 18, 2013

As the regular season winds down, as usual, the walleyes get bigger and one needn’t travel far.  Cloud cover and a.m. or evening windows have been the most productive, with our guests doing best on crawlers.  While the Hodgins have caught and released a good number of fish in the slot range, they have also caught the makings of a nice fish fry too.    The Manners crew spent their usual long weekend, and had a very productive beginning and… Read More »

Lake Vermilion Fishing Report – September 10, 2013

Not much change since the past week.  Walleyes are still in intermediate depths, mainly 18 – 24 feet, either rock or sand/mud  bottom.  However, one group this week is doing well even shallower, mainly 15 feet.   Many report finding fish on almost any main lake structure, but it is a matter of sorting out which spots are holding the bigger fish. Last week there was plenty of golf and sightseeing in the mix for guests, but a couple nice fish… Read More »

Lake Vermilion fishing report – Sept. 1, 2013

Fall has finally arrived.  After near record temps for several days on end, a high of 61 degrees today was a welcome change.  Over the past week, the walleye fishing was the highlight of the week, with some first time Lake Vermilion anglers catching plenty of walleyes off the pontoon.  Plenty of eaters were caught as evidenced by the fish cleaning activity, and several good size fish were released as well.  The Thurks brought their grandson Kenny along, and he… Read More »

Lake Vermilion Fish Report – August 25, 2013

Making up for lost time as it relates to the warm days this past week.  After cooler than expected temps for the previous several weeks, this past week was well above average for daytime high temps, but the wind that accompanied it made things a little more comfortable.  We had some first time guests with us this past week, and walleye success was mixed.  A couple groups caught more than average numbers of smaller walleyes, which bodes well for coming… Read More »

Lake Vermilion Fishing Report – August 18, 2013

The past week was noteworthy for its cooler than normal temperatures, with a couple nights falling down below 40 degrees.  As one would guess, the fishing was inconsistent, with a mix of “eater” walleyes, some jumbo perch and nice smallies among those caught.  The muskie fishing was sporadic, with days of seeing fish followed by days of nothing going on.  The Brennans boated a 31″ and saw others, but did not find the right combination to get them to go….
